I guess we’ll know in a few weeks – that’s if the charming parents of the kids Gillian Gibbons was teaching don’t get her first.
The fact that the 2008 Republican Resistance calendar, which has images of gunmen and gunwomen, is being sold in the outlet beside IRA/Sinn Fein’s party’s headquarters on the Falls Road in west Belfast should surprise NO ONE.
IRA/Sinn Fein are PROUD of their terrorism, of their killing, of their barbarism and the fact that they sell a calendar glorifying in the imagery of terror is exactly what I would expect. However I laughed at DUP spokesman Jeffrey Donaldson’s faux outrage at this. In particular, I was amused by his little soundbite…
"Sinn Fein has a commitment to support the rule of law and it’s unacceptable that they’re promoting literature which glorifies terrorism,” Mr Donaldson said. “I think the police need to examine this and decide whether this kind of merchandise breaches incitement to hatred laws.”
Jeffrey – get a life and spare us your rank hypocrisy. You are happy to sit in GOVERNMENT with the IRA. You have been content to turn a blind eye to the IRA’s murder of Paul Quinn in south Armagh. You know that the IRA Army Council remains intact, and as a Privy Councillor, you will know many more things that should ensure you refusing to share power with these monsters, but yet you do. So this pious cant about a calendar is pathetic stuff.
Some people REALLY hate traffic cameras!
A man has been arrested in the US after a traffic camera was shot three times with a high-powered rifle.
Police in Knoxville, Tennessee were on a routine patrol in the early hours of the morning when they heard a number of sounds "consistent with gunfire". Following a search of the area they saw a man in a people carrier behaving "very suspiciously". When the officers stopped and searched the van they found a high-calibre deer hunting rifle on the floor of the vehicle.When the driver Clifford Clark III, 47, was questioned, the arresting officer said he stated that he "didn’t want to say what he was doing there because he didn’t want to get into trouble". The police subsequently found a red-light camera that had been hit with three high-calibre rounds. Mr Clark was charged with felony vandalism and reckless endangerment.
Yeah, but all the same, don’t you have a sneaking regard for a citizen taking out one of these monstrous intrusions which the State seeks to impose but which motorists view mostly with disgust? Perhaps the war on motorists will no longer be a one-way street?
Did you read that police investigating four abortion clinics in Barcelona used frequently by British women have been horrified to find purpose-built machines attached to the drains that were used to crush foetuses?
Because they were so loud, the machines – which fed into public drains – were switched on only during the early hours of the day to avoid drawing attention to the illegal arrangement, police sources said. Officers gathering evidence at the clinics this week have been testing the machines and drains for traces of DNA, which may be matched with that of past clients, according to reports. Under Spanish law, abortions can be carried out only in cases of rape, if there is a risk to the mother’s physical or mental health or in cases of severe foetal malformation, and then only until the 22nd week of preganancy.
It seems that there has been a steady rise in the number of abortions performed in Spain since it was partially legalised in 1985. About 90,000 are currently performed each year and many experts doubt that they are all legal. Mirentxu Corcoy, a law professsor at Barcelona University, said recently that 90 per cent of the abortions practised in the northeastern region of Catalonia “were on the outer fringes of legality”.
Those Barcelona clinics found guilty of discharging human remains into the public drains should be closed down immediately and those who run them arrested for breaking the law. How can Spain be a popular spot for Brits seeking an abortion when at the same time the law in Spain is essentially prohibitive of what is being sought? I don’t know about you but I just find the whole thing so …inhuman, so sordid, so sad.
You’ve heard of the movie "The Deer Hunter" – but have you heard of the Beer Hunter?
This is the name given to the individual who drove out of the Guinness brewery in Dublin with 40,000 pints of the black stuff!! About 450 kegs of beer and stout were lifted from under the noses of security guards in what is believed to be the first raid on the historic St James’s Gate Brewery at Victoria Quay along the River Liffey. It took place as the police announced their Christmas traffic blitz, giving warning that 160 officers would be on patrol over the coming weeks and urging motorists in the traffic-choked city to leave their vehicles at home. The lone raider, who has already been nicknamed “the Beer Hunter” by Dublin wags, drove his own HGV through the Guinness security gates, attaching it to a well-provisioned trailer and taking off with the makings of a very merry Christmas.
That’s quite a security breach – I wonder if the guards had been imbiding themselves or were they feeling in mood of unusual festive generosity?
I’m sure he is pushing on an open door. I refer to Osama bin Laden who has apparently released a recorded message warning European countries to stop following America and withdraw their forces from Afghanistan.
The Al Qqueda leader also stated once again that he was responsible for presiding over the September 11 attacks. He said the US had "insisted on invading" Afghanistan even though it knew that the Afghans were not behind the attacks, and that "Europe walked behind it".
"The American tide is ebbing," he said in a message addressed to the European public. "It is better for you to restrain your politicians who are thronging the steps of the White House." He said that by following the US into Afghanistan, Europe could only be a "subordinate" to Washington.
What does he MEAN by the expression "the American tide is ebbing"? It seems to me that this is reference to Bush abandoning his own Bush doctrine – pressurised into doing so by a vicious biased media and Democrat opponents lining up to make sure that Al Queda are treated as if they are criminals – rather than Jihad-crazy terrorists. Only a sustained military and political onslaught on All Queda will reduce the threat they pose. That requires Europe working WITH the US. But whilst the likes of Sarkozy seems up for this – Britain under Brown isn’t, and we know how dhimmi the likes of Spain, Germany and many other EU nations already are, so OBL is appealing to their worst dhimmi instincts. Europe walking a separate path from the US is what Bin Laden wants, and so does the msm. Maybe they will get what they wish for – but the consequences will be bad.
Did you see that hospitals may need to keep their hand rub under lock and key to stop patients drinking it for its alcoholic content? Poison experts at London’s Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital received 19 reports of intentional ingestion over 16 months. Those who are in need of alcohol seem prepared to take a swig of the hand rub and so doctors think the 500g bottles need to be secured – which kinda misses the point of having them in the first place! It’s enough to drive you to drink….
MICK FORSYTHE, a 55 year old lorry driver from Northern Ireland, though living now in Wales, has been given a prison sentence for racial harassment after calling a Welsh woman an "English".
Mick Forsythe used the term during an argument over a scratched car in his Welsh home town. He called the vehicle’s owner, Lorna Steele, an "English bitch". She and her husband took great offence at the jibe and decided to take him to court. The 55-year-old former lorry driver was found guilty of racially aggravated disorderly behaviour, and received a ten-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months.
This is outrageous. As rude and unpleasant as Mr Forsythe sounds, it’s both deeply unBritish and disturbing for the state to impose such a draconian penalty for nothing more than an insult. It would have been more effective and just to order Mr Forsythe to apologise instead. Lorna Steele’s (English) husband was with her at the time. He says of Mr Forsythe:
"He is a racist. He doesn’t like the English.
I’m not sure how it’s racist if an Ulsterman doesn’t like the English, but it doesn’t do to go shrieking like a girl to the courts. If any man had spoken to my wife in the way he did I’d have taken care of matters myself.
International law for the RAF …in teenspeak.
Gordon Brown and David Miliband will sign the EU Constitution*, in Lisbon, on 13th December. On 20th November the following exchange took place in the House of Lords:
Baroness Ashton of Upholland: All intergovernmental conference papers, including draft versions of the EU reform treaty, have been placed in the Library of the (20 Nov 2007 : Column WA61) House. The latest text, which has been prepared for discussion in the Jurists-Linguists technical translation group from 12 to 16 November, was circulated to Parliament on 31 October. We will continue to forward any further draft texts to Parliament as soon as we receive them.
*The moment Brown and Miliband sign the Treaty they will have acted ultra vires and committed High Treason. They do not have the right to surrender the indivisible Sovereignty of the British people and to do so will place them in violation of the Treason Felony Act.
